Happy Collection

Installation,packages and waste, numbered items, dimensions variable, Istanbul, 2012

Happy Collection, 2012 is based on the value system that speculates the difference between personas of a hoarder and of an art collector. A hoarder collects invaluable objects, while the latter collects the precious ones. Hoardering, in fact suggests being free from the material-usage value of objects. Being an artist, this little collection of Deniz’s own trash becomes valuable in the system of art, even deserves identification through numbers that implies documentation and valuation. The hoarded objects gain a new value dimension when they are defined as an artwork.
